Sleepwake


Here I lie and cannot sleep

Into day my nightmares creep

My mind is racing forth and back

All I need is a little nap


I don’t know how much I can take

I’m sure my mine soon will break

Mr. Sandman come and see

Won’t you set my dreams free?


I lay here thinking of my day

Did I live it the right way?

I can see mistakes I’ve made

Solid plans I have not laid


I need to sleep it is late

A good night sleep would be great

Tomorrow will be here much too soon

My life is all out of tune


Let me sleep I beg my eyes

While the earth has darkened skies

Mr. Sandman come and see

Another sunrise I will see
